"Kill 'em." Texas Republican's message to TX governor..

In the days after George Floyd's death in police custody in Minneapolis last month, as massive protests against police brutality spread across Texas and other states, conservative power broker Steve Hotze of Houston called Gov. Greg Abbott's chief of staff to pass along a message.

"I want you to give a message to the governor," Hotze told Abbott's chief of staff, Luis Saenz, in a voicemail. "I want to make sure that he has National Guard down here and they have the order to shoot to kill if any of these son-of-a-bitch people start rioting like they have in Dallas, start tearing down businesses - shoot to kill the son of a bitches. That's the only way you restore order. Kill 'em. Thank you."

Biden will now get enhanced Secret Service protection and some level of daily intelligence briefings?

In light of yesterday's hearing in Georgia where sickening details

Of the Ahmaud Arbery investigation came out. Three white rednecks in pickups chase a black man down. We can’t ask James Byrd Jr. how a black man should react to that terror since he was murdered when he was dragged behind their truck until his arm and head were severed.

Thanks for nuthin governor abbott. Send in DPS

GALVESTON COUNTY, Texas (KTRK) -- The city of Galveston is looking to state officials in helping to manage massive crowd sizes on its beaches that the city says is putting first responders in danger.

"We have some areas in the West End of the island (where last weekend there) were large congregations in spots," said City Manager Brian Maxwell. "We had to put our first responders in some very precarious situations."

Coming to a funeral home near you-- the Dan Patrick show!! Sorry Granny and Pawpaw

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- Already a lightning rod of criticism across the country, Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick ripped Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo on Wednesday, calling her executive order to require masks in public, as well as spearheading a $60 million COVID-19 medical site at NRG Park, "overreaching."

Patrick released a statement, saying the medical site wasn't needed.

A Question about a COVID-19 vaccination (Years Away?)

I will be more than happy to delete this post if it contains incorrect information. In doing research about vaccines, I came across a lot of things I didn’t understand. Translational RNA, amino acid and peptide formation and a whole lot more. One thing that I did read loud and clear was that the Ebola vaccine was developed, approved, and administered in, and I quote, “record time”—- 5 years. The rationale is that since they will be giving people COVID-19, albeit an attenuated dose, they have to be certain they don’t kill you with it.
When we are told that a vaccine may be discovered by September, is it possible that people assume that it will be ready to be deployed, not just ready to begin trials?
Anyone smarter than me, please correct me.

I finally think (cautiously) that Dear Leader will lose in November and then:

The government teat will dry up taxpayer spending on his bedbug shithole facilities;
Suck up enema nozzles like Barr won’t host $35,000 Christmas parties at his crypts;
Putin won’t be able to use him for money laundering;
Middle eastern sheikdoms won’t rent entire floors of rooms they never stay in to bail his and his demon spawn’s broke ass out;
The courts will pursue him like a hound on a pork chop;
His magats will go back under their rocks;
His properties will be so toxic they’ll have to be superfund sites;
In short, he’s fucked and it couldn’t happen to a more deserving shit bird.
I’m sure I’ve missed some so please add to my list.

Can someone help me understand

why Bernie Sanders isn’t already considered a third party candidate? Is it because he is running in democratic primaries? He is not a Democrat or a republican. Is the fact that he’s running in a Democratic primary the sole determinant? And before I get bombarded with the daggers of vitriol, let me be clear. 1. I mean this as an honest question. 2. I will vote blue, period. Full stop.

Moo-Nez's August 2018 Fundraiser

Makes so much sense now. He warned republicans that they HAD to keep the house or Spanky would be impeached. He’s up to eyeballs in cow shit.
